The Greeks learned to catch them, with lines, nets, the harpoon, trident, lamparo, and madrague. The word madrague means literally 'enclosure for catching tuna' and is from the Arabic 'al mazraba.' Maguelonne Toussaint-Samat. History of Food (1987). tr. Anthea Bell (1992, 1994). p. 299.
52% of canned tuna is used for sandwiches; 22% for salads; and 15% for casseroles and helpers.
"Tuna," Modern Marvels (2010). Cited in Tuna.

I love Recovery Cat! For the longest time I thought Recovery Cat was about the Great Recession, and then he went to AA. It is exactly the same thing. People in recovery can teach a country in recovery about a hell of a lot. Uh, like, humor and tolerance. Oh, wait, few cats are tolerant. Okay. Just the humor then.
